Nakazato agrees with Sun's appreciation of 3D printing, saying, "3D printing is revolutionizing the industry. Traditionally, dress making is a short combination of planes and fabrics to make 3D shapes. But with more advanced materials available in the future, such as one with the feel of fabric, using a 3D printer we could create a dress of any shape instantly, just as it is imagined.
Nakazato continues, "I sometimes get an urgent order from the US for which a customer might say, 'Send me this dress today. I have an award ceremony tomorrow.' Currently, it's impossible for us to meet her requirements because it would take days to make a dress and ship it to Hollywood from Tokyo. However, in the future when we begin making dresses with 3D printing, all we will have to do is to send her 3D design files by e-mail. She could 3D print it in Hollywood and make it to the red carpet the next day."
Aya Yoshizawa, Marketing Manager at Stratasys Japan, says, "Mr. Nakazato's unique talent in couture is clearly evident through this collection. We can see here yet another example of 3D printing technology enabling unique artistic creations. Especially in the fashion industry, a designer's requirement for manufacturing is not limited to geometry, but also includes quality of texture. The Objet500 Connex multi-material 3D Printer is able to meet this uncompromised requirement and help visionaries like Nakazato shape their imagination."
